  • Jorge Ben

    Africa Brasil LP (1976)

    Philips ‎

One of the best brazilian joints ever. you know how when brazilian dudes tried to get funky, it usually got mad corny (see: tim maia)? well, ya boy jorge ain't respondin to any of that. this is just straight dope and it's got heavy funk shit with a nice kind of afrobeat / traditional brazilian folk music edge to it. it's got a nice variety too, with some slower jams up in the mix and a couple floor burners as well. i love most of this dude's output, but this is a real good one to start with if you're into that funk.
